Grads falling on Be’ersheva: Two Grad-class rockets (the mid-range ketushas that were used on us in the north during the the Second Lebanon War) hit Be’ersheva this morning. Hamas uses the bizarre logic of saying that these are in retaliation for Israeli air strikes. Uh, what?! The air strikes were to take out rocket launchers that had been pummeling Israeli communities for months and months! We’re through the looking glass now, kids.
Israeli math: Thank goodness for Kamah Kessef, the website that helps you calculate how much you are supposed to give at an Israeli wedding. With the son of a first cousin getting married in a few weeks, I need to figure it out. Hmmm. That much? Oi. And me without two skekels to rub together.
Nadine update: Damn cat has gone from being lusciously fat to a sack of bones. I now have an anorexic cat. She seems totally disinterested in food, though if I heat up something and put it right in front of her, she’ll lick a bit. She ate about 1/2 tsp of expensive Italian cat food this morning (chicken and pasta, I think). Terri hovers nearby, almost shaking with excitement. She knows that she automatically gets to finish off whatever Nadine rejects.
